Relax and Go With the Flow

January 5th 2007

I’ve always had a fast pace. In track, I was a sprinter.  On the football field, I used to have “wheels,” and in basketball, I enjoyed running the fast break and chasing after loose balls.

Today, I’m awfully confident no one would credit me with having “wheels,” but I still don’t mind chasing down a loose ball and I’m always enjoy running a fast break, although I have trouble finishing my shot just as I did years ago!

My pace these days – whether working or spending time with my family – seems to be the same as it was years ago, but probably not as fast as friends in the east and probably not as slow as friends in the south.

Some people caution me to “slow down,” “enjoy the moment,” and ask, “Why don’t you just relax and go with the flow?”

Well, “relax” isn’t something I’ve ever been comfortable with and I’ve tried on several occasions to just “go with the flow” – as my wife encourages me to do from time-to-time – and it just doesn’t seem to fit my personality profile.

I likely was standing in the “impatient” line when they handed out the “go with the flow” characteristic, because I struggle mightily with it, and “patience” isn’t my strong suit.

So, for those of you who know me, if the next time you see me and I look like I’m being impatient or in a hurry, know that’s probably the case and just “relax” and “go with the flow!”
